In Not Medea, An exhausted working mother escapes to the sanctuary of the theatre and encounters a play she desperately doesn't want to watch. Allison Gregory's Not Medea, is a refreshing take on an old story and gives its audience a much needed perspective on the trials and tribulations of motherhood in the 21st century. A synthesis of myth/magic/real world, Not Medea is a fierce slap-down about love, lust, motherhood, and forgiveness.
Art House Productions' Executive Director, Meredith Burns thinks the play will resonate with audiences regardless of whether or not they know the story of Euripedes' Medea. "There's a reason this play is titled Not Medea because it's certainly not the same story or even a modern interpretation of Medea, but an all together different, at times funny, meta theatrical experience. That said, the themes of love, loss, and double-standards remain at the heart of this play too."
